I’m Taking Ownership of My Tweets—zachleat.com

I fully expect my personal website to outlive Twitter and as such have decided to take full ownership of the content I’ve posted there. In true IndieWeb fashion, I’m taking ownership of my data.

This is the story of the ZX81…

This could’a, should’a, would’a been a great blog post.

March 1981: Shakin’ Stevens was top of the charts, Tom Baker was leaving Doctor Who and Clive Sinclair was bringing computers to the masses. Britain was moving into a new age, and one object above all would herald its coming.

How to get your tweets displaying on your website using JavaScript, without using new Twitter 1.1 API

A little piece of JavaScript to strip out the styling from Twitter widgets.

Instead, the person who actually posted the tweets in the first place gets to decide how they should be displayed. Crazy idea, isn’t it?

oldtweets - Laughing Meme

Kellan explains the tech behind Old Tweets …and also the thinking behind it:

That can be my next tweet

A fun bit of Markov chaining of your tweets. Some of mine:

Had a burrito in Barcelona. Thank you get the peacocks plumage.

Stand by to the most helpful. The Fuck Was That type shop and David Byrne walked into a Wikipedia entry?

Last Waltz again. This Is A demonstration of The office doors are they talk right now. Cool your plans.

Picking salad leaves from the people who own them. They’re just resting” at the communal testing lab is!

Heading out the standard option. Alas, there’s no signs of spending Bloomsday as constructive feedback?

Pentametron: With algorithms subtle and discrete / I seek iambic writings to retweet.

Algorithmically-generated combinations of tweets in iambic pentameter. Some of the results are really quite lovely. I’m imagining a poetry reading of this stuff in a hip café …it would be fun.
